If you've never done the Special Olympics Polar Plunge, this is the year to finally go for it!

It's one of the best fundraisers in Buffalo--each member of your team is asked to raise $100 for Special Olympics, and then everyone gathers at Woodlawn Beach State Park on Saturday, December 1st. Anyone under the age of 18 can participate with written consent from a parent or guardian.

Many of the participants dress up in costumes, wetsuits, or just bathing suits before taking the plunge into the frigid water. You'll want to put some thought into what you wear, because there are prizes for the best individual and group costumes.

Over $200,000 is raised for Special Olympics every year via the nationwide Polar Plunge initiative, and the New York chapter is one of the largest programs in the country. We want to invite YOU to be a part of our team this year, so just click the button below to join us!
